Four French soldiers in the eastern Kapisa province were killed June 9, 2012, by a male suicide bomber wearing a burqa. At least 20 civilians were killed in a June 6, 2012, attack by two suicide bombers on the Kandahar airport.
The search results for “recent Afghanistan suicide bombers” stretch back pages and pages.
More recently, on June 11, 2012, a roadside bomb planted by Taliban insurgents blew up an ambulance that was rushing a pregnant woman to a hospital to give birth. The woman, her baby and three relatives were all killed in the explosion.
None of the killers responsible for any of these attacks is likely to appear in Kabul’s suicide bomber rehab, and it is questionable if the rehabilitation center’s course of treatment would change their attitudes and beliefs.
